Statement on the Election Results
Raleigh, N.C. — Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) released the following statement about tonight’s election results:
“Tonight the voters of North Carolina spoke loud and clear. They returned a Republican supermajority to the state Senate. I want to thank the voters for their trust and support over the past seven elections.
“This election has been a barometer for where voters want their state and country to go. The Republican platform of low taxes, job creation, expanded parental choice, and quality education, is one that reflects the needs of all North Carolinians. Tonight’s results prove just that.
“Our promise to the people of North Carolina is that the Senate Republican supermajority will continue to deliver on those priorities.
“Congratulations to House Speaker Tim Moore and my colleagues in the House for their successes tonight. I look forward to working with them during the next biennium to accomplish our shared priorities.
“I’m hopeful that Senate Democrats will respect the verdict of North Carolina’s voters evident in tonight’s results.”
